More about me

How do you like your coffee? I love coffee.

What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working? Attending music festivals or camping at one of NZ’s beautiful beaches, spending time with great people, great food, great music and playing the violin.

What’s your favourite thing about working at Christian Savings? The crew and enthusiastically collecting office plants (but I’m not very good at looking after them)
